Where I work we have plastic printed passes with nfc chips in. When you assign the card to a person, you place it on a reader, read the tag number, then print it. I discovered my NFC ring can be added like any normal security card. So I can open the doors at work with a wave of my hand, although I still need to carry my pass for securtiy/compliance reasons, but it's a small piece of nerdy pleasure.
Each Jeweler will have their own approach, but let the Jeweler know the material is titanium and to add material to that. If you heat up the ring too much the epoxy will melt and the inlays will fail so be careful not to apply too much heat. It's usually a lot cheaper to just buy replacement rings.
A competent jeweler could remove some material in between the inlays I suppose :) I'd like to see pics of this if you do this.
RE #2 we have a team who work on custom rings. Unfortunately each ring is $10k+ as it requires management and hand crafting. See our Henry Holland rings as an example of this.
@sumastavr We fixed that problem a while ago, you got a first version of the ring (I guess there must be some still in stock somehow :().
Everyone who had the inlay peeling fault got a free replacement ring, no questions asked and we covered all costs.
To us this is a resolved issue, we replace faulty rings with good (newer versions). Apologies you got two of the older versions, shoot support through an email (if you haven't already), the chance of you being third time lucky is < 0.1%.
For background on the issue (because I believe now is a good time). The epoxy keying was not good enough and the curved nature of the ceramic meant the glue / epoxy wasn't staying in the ring long enough. We resolved this and have created new testing machines to ensure durability.
We have obviously advanced way past this initial design (which was designed in 2013) and moving forward you guys are going to love what we put out.
Warts and all, happy to talk about it, no product is perfect, our V1 wasn't, our V1.1 was a bit better and easily surpasses any replicas / copies available to purchase.
PS we're not quick at replying on forum etc. right now because we're busy all hands on deck getting the Worlds First Payment Rings out the door :)
We got new rings in but they sold out super quick (already pre-reserved by corp clients). I think some more should be due in soon, we did recently get a delivery but I'm not sure on the status of QA checks
